Feanor (Posts: 952; Member since: 20 Jun 2012) I have a Galaxy J5 (2017). The call forwarding switch is in the phone app instead of the main setting (as in every other telephone) and buried deep inside "other settings". In the same phone app the call button is a small option (as if it wasn't the most important thing you'd want to do in the app) and still after four months of having the phone I haven't figured out how I hang up...

It's time again for more Windows 8 information based on the job resumes and portfolios of employees, as well as job ads placed by Microsoft itself. As I did previously in the last Windows 8 post I wrotelike this, I've linked directly to the source for each item in quotes below. Some of these mentions are here just for the sake of continuity, but there is certainly some good information to be gleaned from what some of these people are saying. I've done all the leg work, so now it's your turn to have a field day analyzing it all and coming to your own conclusions. In no particular order of importance: Windows 8 Member of the Hyper-V test team. Hyper-V is Microsoft's Hypervisor Based Virtualization Platform. It is a component of Windows.

Last night at an event in London, Asus officially unveiled the first two Zenbook ultraportables, the UX21 and UX31, which will go on sale in the UK on October 21. Both machines are based on Intel's Ultrabook format. They represent Intel's attempt to take ultraportables similar to the latest versions of Apple's MacBook Air and make them mass market. Intel, co-hosting the launch with Asus, said it had "high hopes" for volume sales at this time next year. Intel's Dan Belton also looked forward to future versions using its next Ivy Bridge processors (current models use Sandy Bridge chips), with touch screens and Microsoft Windows 8. Intel's aspirations and its cooperation with Asus are already well known. Intel introduced the Ultrabook concept at the Computex exhibition in Taiwan, where Asus co-founder Jonney Shih appeared on stage with Intel's Sean Maloney to show off the UX design. At the time, Maloney told me: "If we do it right, the PC Ultrabook will be 40 percent of the notebook … [Read more...] about Asus launches Zenbooks: the first Intel Ultrabooks
Part 1 – The Evolving CORPORATE HR Products Some unexpected surgery prevented me from attending LinkedIn’s annual user conference a couple of weeks ago in Las Vegas. That event, believe it or not, was possibly the one software event I absolutely wanted to attend this year. Why? Read on….. For decades, HR software has been designed for CORPORATIONS. This software kept companies in compliance with regulatory bodies and out of jail. It made sure employees were correctly and timely compensated. And, these systems enforced adherence to HR, recruiting and other related processes and controls. But, a new crop of HR solutions are entering the market and they’re different. They’re different as they were designed first and foremost for PERSONS not corporations. These differences are quite telling. LinkedIn may be the poster child for the PERSON-based HR world. Now, the move to PERSON-based HR products has been underway for a time. As the … [Read more...] about The battle in HR software: software for corporations or persons?
When you look at the numbers, a software engineer in Romania makes as much as a van driver does in the UK. But when you take into account the cost of living, the picture shifts dramatically. In Romania, IT professionals make headlines for earning five times the average local salary, and most recruiters are talking about wages rising up to 15 percent next year. Software engineers' salaries However, for the moment, there is a significant gap in Europe between the East and the West. Tudor Constantin, an experienced Perl developer working in Cluj-Napoca for software company Evozon, has considered the idea of moving to Western Europe or the US, but gave up the idea after he compared income and living expenses. "At the moment, it's not worth the trouble. A software developer in Cluj with seven years' experience earns an average of €1,700 a month," he says. "I've calculated using numbeo that in order to afford the same kind of life, I'd have to make about €8,000 in New York." He … [Read more...] about ‘Life is pretty good here for IT people’: Where techies earn five times the average salary
Technology giants Apple and Samsung are duking it out in a California courtroom in what may be the tech trial of the mobile revolution. Did Samsung “slavishly” copy Apple’s patented design and interface elements in products like the Galaxy S smartphones and Galaxy tablets, as Apple claims, or is Samsung merely following broader trends in the mobile industry — trends that weren’t Apple’s inventions at all? Apple might seem to have the upper hand — the case is being tried before the same judge that granted an injunction on sales of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 — but trade dress issues are notoriously difficult to win, and patent battles can linger for years.The trial is on break through August 10, so we thought this might be a good time to look at the major points each side has made so far — and perhaps get a sense of whether Apple or Samsung has the upper hand.Judge reprimands SamsungThe trial got off to a very shaky start for … [Read more...] about Apple vs. Samsung: Everything you need to know about tech’s biggest court battle
Google releases a new language: GoGoogle has released its own programming language called Go. While I'm usually quite dubious of most development-related things that come from Google (the company has a bad habit of never-ending betas and stick to AJAX widgets for public consumption), I'm quite impressed by Go. It is open source with a BSD license (good choice, Google!), and it can be compiled with its own compiler or a GCC-based compiler. The language itself is fascinating, combining elements from dynamic languages and static languages and taking influences from things like CSP (which spawned Erlang), Pascal, and more. CNET's Stephen Shankland has more details about Go.Facebook API 3.0 releasedThe .NET API to work with Facebook has just had its third release.

Terminal multiplexer applications are a great boon to Unix and Linux sysadmins all over the world. They allow sysadmins to start long-running tasks on remote machines, terminate the SSH session to that machine, then connect to the machine again and resume watching the task or check its results very easily. They also allow sysadmins to run several shell sessions within a single virtual terminal, which is of great use for remote administration as well. The uses to which a terminal multiplexer can be put are numerous and, at times, indispensable.By far, the best known terminal multiplexer is GNU Screen. In fact, many people who use it in their day to day work are not familiar with the term "terminal multiplexer", in much the same way that many people who use Microsoft Windows every day are not familiar with the term "operating system". GNU Screen has been around for a long time, and to many it is synonymous with the very concept of a terminal multiplexer application.This is changing … [Read more...] about Is tmux the GNU Screen killer?

The Creators Update will begin being rolled out to the wider world from April 11. The update introduces various features for business and home users, but there are also some noticeable gaps in what it delivers. Here are the promised additions that didn't make it, some long-requested upgrades still not implemented and a couple of missed opportunities to improve the OS. SEE: Windows 10 Creators Update: The smart person's guide1. Even more control over updates for Home users Since Windows 10 launched, Home users have had little choice but to accept the steady stream of updates that Microsoft pushes to Windows 10. The desire to keep software up to date is understandable, but the upshot is that Home users have limited options if they want to hold off on accepting an update until any bugs have been fixed, with last year's Anniversary Update causing significant problems for some users. While the Creators Update will let Home users delay installation of updates by repeatedly … [Read more...] about Windows 10: Ten missed opportunities in the Creators Update
